Even though I get my normal emails, I haven't received any subscription emails from threads I've subscribed that have had continued activity?

Are these in the process of being turned on for the new board software?

BTW - my Windows Exchange Server email server uses GreyListing to prevent spam - which basically says "I'm busy, try back in 5 minutes" to the first email it gets from a triad of ip address/sender address, recipient address).

The "try back in 5, I'm busy" is part of the RFC for all email servers (as they do become busy at times). The current SMTP specification (RFC 5321) clearly states that "the SMTP client retains responsibility for delivery of that message" (section 4.2.5) and "mail that cannot be transmitted immediately MUST be queued and periodically retried by the sender." (section 4.5.4.1).
